Hi I'm Tracey

I'm an exam invigilator. I'm a mum to 4 children. I'm a wife and I'm a nan to 3 beautiful granddaughters & I'm a mormon.

About Me

I've been a member of the church since my parents were introduced in 1969. I love being involved with the programs of the church, which provide a better life for all to enjoy. I work in the children's area in Church (It's called, Primary), I am the music leader, teaching them new religious songs. am also over the 8 -12 year olds, Faith in God Program. This is an activity based program, designed around goal setting and living a Christ like life. I love doing family history, sometimes it is hard to find the time, but I still enjoy doing it and helping others with their geneology research. I love spending time with my family, especially my grand daughters, I want them to be able to remember me for the right reasons. My husband is someone special, he works long and hard and I know that I want to be with him forever, so I'm so glad that I have that opportunity through the teachings of the church. My children are good kids, they are all on their own journeys through this life. Some of their journeys are in harmony with the church, some are not. One thing that I've learnt, which is good, is you have to be part of someone's life to let them know that they are important, & that you care, and until they trust you, you cannot help them improve or make changes for the better. We have a husky, named Jack. We enjoy watching TV together as a family. I love to paint with acrylics. I enjoy watching my garden grow; tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, potatoes and beetroot

Why I am a Mormon

I follow the teachings of the Church because I know that the Church gives us good principles to live by and that the teachings of the Prophet's of God are true. In this day and age, why wouldn't someone want all that is good and right for their family? When people do what is right, or try to, then doesn't that show "By their fruits ye shall know them"? People have faults and don't always do what they are meant to do, but we are human beings in a frail body, at times we have to allow for the weak minds and bodies. We have to try our best, living the Gospel isn't always easy, BUT it is right. We have to continue to try and to improve. Nobody in Church is perfect, we all have faults and failings, and so I am glad that I am accepted, as the person that I am. A person who can change and improve. I know that the Church is true. I know that the teachings are right and that the men and women who God calls to lead the Church, are chosen for the good qualities that they have. I know that the Prophet, Joseph Smith, saw a vision of Jesus Christ and God (Our Heavenly Father), thus declaring to the world, that indeed God and Jesus have got two separate bodies, they are two distinct personages. I know that when I pray, God hears my prayers, I know that they are answered, when the time is right, and often this is not when I am expecting them to be answered. I know that the Holy Ghost gives comfort, I have felt His comforting presence around me when I have struggled with things in my life, If you listen to that still small voice, I know that He will be there to help. I am grateful for the strength that I feel when I attend Church, my friendships with the members has helped me through some tough decisions. The Gospel of the Saviour is woven in my life, as a tapestry. Principles & teachings are intermingled with life experiences. My tapestry, is one that I will take home to God, and hopefully He will say to me, "Well done, my good and faithful servant Tracey."

How I live my faith

I live my faith, by being an example of it. I try my best to do things that are "What the Saviour" would have me do. I feel that if we help children understand their faith now, they will be able to make positive steps in their futures, with a better understanding of themselves and others. I attend Church every week, and I try to make a positive impact within it. I love working with the children and helping them along their journeys. I organise many events for the children & I teach them their songs each Sunday. In my local community, I am an Exam Invigilator, this job is about allowing all children the same opportunity to do well in their exams. It allows me to communicate and liase between different levels of staff and pupils, practising speaking skills that I've developed through the membership that I have in Church..It is all about being a good citizen, setting a good example and achieving the best. Things that are in harmony with Church teachings. I love my job. I am a Visiting Teacher, which basically means, with another lady from Church, we have the added responsibility to visit monthly 6 sisters. We call on them to help them with their struggles in life. We become their friends, their confidants and their rocks to lean on in times of trouble. We share their happy and sad times, hopefully they enjoy our visits, as much as we enjoy visiting with them. Most importantly, I think I live my faith by practising what I believe. I love my family, I love my life and I love my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I believe that Families Can Be Together Forever, and so I want to ensure tat I can be with mine too!
